Deciding on the goals/direction of medical care for your pet

Your best resource for help making these decisions is either a veterinarian who has known your pet for an extended period of time, or a veterinarian who has experience providing palliative care assessments. These links can help you know what to look for so you can talk things over with family members, and can clearly describe the situation to your veterinary professional(s).
